n an extremely shocking and strange story from the Jiangxi city of Fuzhou, a man allegedly forced a woman to have sex with him by threatening her with venomous snakes, only to then be bitten by one of the snakes and die.
The incident played out in the early morning of November 22nd inside a hotel in the city where the man was a guest, having brought his snakes along with him. His death was reported to police by a woman who said that the man had raped her after threatening that if she did not give in to him, he would have one of his three snakes bite her.
However, the man ended up being bitten himself by a venomous viper apparently while playing with his snakes in the hotel bathtub. Police said that the man chose not to call the police or seek medical treatment. The incident is currently under further investigation.
Earlier this year, a woman in Shaanxi province fell into a coma and was declared braindead after being bitten by a highly venomous many-banded krait which she had bought online.
